Thread: jailbreak question

  1. #1
    Default jailbreak question
    I am one of the dummies that screwed up my baseband the last time I did a jailbreak and ended up with baseband 5.14.02
    My question is, I am about to sell my 3gs and need to know if I can still jailbreak it before selling it? I have read so many posts about this and I still don't have the answer..Can someone help me with this and if it is still possible, tell me which jailbreak to use..I would really appreciate it.

    You can jb it you just can't unlock it without having to upgrade to the iPad bb and breaking the GPS.

    But if you want to jb you can use redsn0w.

    Thanks. I don't really care about the unlock, just thought I would get more for it if it were jailbroken. I will go read up on redsnow and see if I think I can do it this time without screwing it up further...

    Well that's good if you don't need to unlock. You can jailbreak it. You'll have fun with it

    It's not the same thing. You can use greenpois0n if you're on firmware 4.2.1 or 4.1.

    since I am selling the phone would it be easier and faster to just restore it to my custom 4.1 restore file that I have on my desktop? I also have redsnow 0.9.4 on my desktop. restoring it is the only way to clear all my apps, phone book etc from the phone?

    You'd need SHSHs for 4.1. If you saved those SHSHs last year, then sure you could do that.

    yes I have shshs from 3.1 all the way to 4.3.3
    Just a quick refresher. when I start itunes, just click shift restore, run that, then just run redsnow? Is that correct?

    Well if you're going to 4.3.3 then yes you'd restore to stock 4.3.3 then jb with redsn0w.

    If you're not going to use 4.3.3 then it's something a little different.

    I have on my desktop: iphone2,1_4_1_8B117_restore.ipsw . I did this jailbreak on 10-7 2010. I also have on my desktop redsnow-win_0.9.4
    is that the right redsnow for 4.1?

    So you have 4.1 on your 3GS yes?

    You would want to use limera1n or redsn0w 0.9.6b6 to jb it. Probably limera1n is easier.
